Must-See TV: A Day in the Life of Naomi Campbell Is As Glamorous as You Think

We will never not love Naomi Campbell. She can throw a phone or a fantastic party, and we’ll just laugh it off and love her just the same. By turns, she’s a black Barbie come to life and also our fabulous play-cousin-in-our-head from across the pond whose impossibly glamorous life is the stuff fashion-obsessed dreams are made of.

After all, just look at the woman; at 47, she’s still in demand as a model, and to date, she’s been slaying for more than 30 years on camera and on the catwalk alike. (Fun fact: She’s also released 16 fragrances during that time.)

Not that she hasn’t diversified her interests. While she’s been dancing and performing professionally since childhood, her profile as an actress and producer has risen in recent years with juicy roles in two popular Lee Daniels television vehicles, Empire and Star.


But her latest feat? Making the pages of one of the world’s most revered and established fashion magazines much more colorful by joining new Editor-in-Chief Edward Enninful as the contributing editor of British Vogue, a role that seems ideally suited to Campbell’s sensibilities.

And in a brilliant move, British Vogue is leveraging having one of the most glamorous women in the world on staff by giving her her own web series, A Day in the Life of Naomi Campbell. We’re only two episodes in, but already, I’m hooked.

Watch Campbell hold court in the conference room at British Vogue, plan and attend events, whisk around London, greet her adoring fans, get glammed up, and get her groove on with a coterie of good friends and very recognizable faces, including Virgil Abloh, Adwoa Aboah, Idris Elba and The Glow Up’s own Veronica Webb.

It’s an all-too-brief and vicarious glimpse into the still-exciting life of a legendary supermodel, but it may be just the pick-me-up you need to cure the midweek slump.

Maiysha Kai is Managing Editor of The Glow Up, co-host of The Root Presents: It's Lit! podcast, and your average Grammy-nominated goddess next door...May I borrow some sugar?
